Longford Hat Reviewed by Suzanne Edwards on 2015-01-06 *****
I made these hats for a children's Christmas party. They were a hit and made one every evening for a month. Will be making more for next year because they were so easy and popular.

I can't stop making these quick hats for Christmas presents! One ball thick & quick yarn makes one large & one small hat.I also used the DP needles only. Size 13 for 5/6yr old. Size 11 for 2/3 yr old (Begin shaping crown after 4in. for smaller size)I thought maybe the stitches would fall off the DP needles, but they didn't and were a pleasure to make. Instead of pom poms I used tassels. Cut 3 strands yarn 32in long, doubled over and braided for 7in., tied up bottom of braid in knot, trim hanging tassel. I found using a size K-10.5 Crochet hook made a neater trim. Also I re-did the trim on the larger blue hat & subsequent hats with smaller hook and started and ended the trim at the bottom of one ear-flap weaving in loose ends with lg. eye needle to be concealed by braid(no visible bumps) Am going to try teen/adult hat on sz15 DP needles. LUV this pattern, am starting my 9th hat!

I found the pattern easy to follow. I used a size 11 needle to make it just a bit smaller for my twin 2-year old nephews. Super cute hat!

I love this pattern! I knit them on double pointed needles instead of the circular and it worked out so well. I knit three strands of worsted weight wool together and it makes a really warm hat. I made two different sizes. I used a size 13 dpn to make a toddler hat and a size 9 dpn to make a baby hat. Easy project that you can knit up in a day.

This is an easy pattern, once you understand the first part of the directions. I am a beginner and it took me watching another tutorial to understand that you have to leave a long tail, cut your work, transfer then start a new ear flap. I will include a picture when I am done. Easy isn't always beginner! :) Thank you for the great pattern!

Really quick and easy project. Fits my 10 year old very well and she is wearing it now!

please with how this turned out - I did need some help with the finished edging but it went fast and the young girl I made it for wore it the whole 3 days she visited us!

Longford Hat Reviewed by Lynn Fischer on 2010-11-26 *****
I'm on my third hat. I added a mohawk for my first one. I did a 1 1/2 inch stripe of a contrast color for my second one. Instead of doing 9 stitches for the ear flap, I increased it to 11, then did 11 stitches for the back and front as well. The size turned out nicely for a 13 year old boy. Many teenagers are requesting one.
